AlliAlli is the over-the-counter version of Orlistat (chemical name tetrahydrolipstatin), a drug marketed by GlaxoSmithKline in the United States for the treatment of obesity. It is designed to prevent the absorption of fat in a human diet, thereby decreasing calorie intake. It has also been shown to reduce blood pressure and suspend the onset of Type 2 diabetes.
Orlistat has long been known to cause a variety of side effects, including:

  • Steatorhhea—oily and loose stools, as well as excessive flatulence
  • Other gastrointestinal conditions, such as fecal incontinence, and excessive or urgent bowel movements
  • An increased risk of acute kidney injury (a study showed the rate of acute kidney injury to be three times as high for Orlistat users than non-users)
  • A small risk of liver injury
